Simple Red, White, & Blue Berry Wreath

I love wreaths. I have a ton of them. 
 I enjoy making them for different holidays and seasons or just for fun.
I realized I didn't have a good wreath that I could use for July 4th, SAY WHAT?!, so needless to say, I decided to make myself one.

I didn't want it over the top patriotic so I could use it longer than just a few holidays so this is what I ended up making.


I kept it simple and and I am really happy with how it turned out.

Supplies:
-Grapevine Wreath
-Red, White, and Blue Berry picks (found in the floral section of Hobby Lobby and used 4 picks)
-Ribbon
-Hot Glue Gun

Ignore the bag of stars. I was going to use them but decided against it in the end.

I began by separating the picks into individual sticks and glued them to on side of the  wreath form.

I then left a slight gap at the bottom where there are no berries where the bow will go, and went up the other side of the wreath.
All the picks face up the wreath.

Continue gluing the picks into the wreath filling in any areas you feel there is a gap until all the picks are used.

Next, take the ends of the picks and tuck and weave them into the wreath and around the other picks.
I didn't need to use any glue but if you have one that just won't stay in place, feel free to glue it. down.

All tucked and looking much better!

I bought this wired ribbon and created a bow and tied it to the bottom area of the wreath that I left open.

And that's it!

So simple and I can use it for a longer period of time.

You could always add more embellishments to it if you'd like but I just liked the simplicity of it as is.
